    Nice score!
    Those were heavy to lift into the truck.
    Couldn't tell if there's a lift gate on the truck.

    Must have ate your "Wheaties" for breakfast :)

    Thanks guys. Yeah Dave...no lift gate. The lower back was sore from some of the lower "base" rounds if you will. High lift into that truck.

    Nice load of Black Locust there. I break those big rounds up before loading. Much easier on the back and usually pretty easy to split the Big BL.

    Nice score. Got the same type of score not too long ago? Split several pallets worth the other day. Goes so quick when straight. Wouldn't be from Warminster by chance? IMG_8617.JPG

    Locust is awesome! Get it nice and dry and it will make lots of heat for a long time. My absolute favorite. Easily ready to burn n one year too.

    Not far away. The locust I scored was in Warminster and there was still more so I was curious.

    Love that locust. Just finished splitting my last rounds to complete
    2 cords for future. Bark is off so I'll wait 2 years and it will be nice
    and seasoned for optimal BTUs.
